It’s vacation weeks around here. Here are some impressions. Island time.
Farmers market in Belfast
free range dogs and chickens.
Indoors at Chase’s Daily
Old Port, Portland
It’s been quiet around this little blog, mostly due to summer, a lot of work and letting loose. I still have a few milestones until I release myself on a 2 week vacation but I take work to the beach. Good if you can. One half of me enjoys the salty, tangy sea breeze and the other half gets work done. Not bad.
Here are a few impressions from the last weeks.
It is an event if there is a Rolls Royce Convertible in Belfast. Even men take selfies with the car.
Otherwise, the new find in Belfast is “Meanwhile in Belfast”, a Neapolitan Pizzeria, run by an Italian family with just the best pizzas. The colors of white and pastel make the place look fresh and cozy.
And that is the sandwich…. with fresh baked bread.
It is August, and people actually swim in the ocean. Brrrh.
I am not sure what happened here, maybe a paparazzi convention in Rockland?
I had not been in Rockland for at least 5-6 years, and new stores have popped up, like this gorgeous, local version of a Wholefoods, with a nice hot bar (Main Street Market, Rockland, ME).
Acai bowl for me!
Another place I hung out this summer, accidentally, is Havana in Bar Harbor. It is ‘far away’ (maybe a half Mile) from the center of the tourist craze, there are plenty of parking spots, it is quiet and it has excellent food. What’s not to like.
The outdoor patio of Havana’s.
Home-made pickled vegetables at Havana’s.
And, yes, working with a view (Northeast Harbor, ME).
